“Say, if Petronas makes RM70bil or RM80bil (and) they want to channel it for fuel subsidy. Then where will the government obtain funds for building roads, hospitals and other amenities?” Najib said at the Tuaran Tamu Besar and Cultural Carnival here yesterday.
The Star - Najib: Opposition would bankrupt the country over fuel subsidy
What Najib didn't tell the people of Sabah was that the roads, hospitals and other amenities are going their direction but to the corridors in the Peninsula - the Iskandar Development Region covering southern Johor, the East Coast Economic Region (ECER) and the Northern Corridor Economic Region covering Perlis, Kedah, Penang and northern Perak.
We don't know if all/any of these corridors will lead to development and the betterment of Malaysians, but we rest assure that they all lead to the UMNO connected contractors.
Common people like us would have to continue to plead for hospitals and other amenities. Every 4,5 years, we get lucky and have some things approved.
btw, roads are given in the Klang Valley cos the government sells them to toll concessionaires.
